Mother's Day

What an Honor it is to be the MOM of these 2 great kids. I love them so much. They have forever changed my life. Each of them bring so much joy and happiness to my life daily. Kohen is just a crack up! My little Addi starts and ends my day with a smile. She is the BEST baby!!! I feel very fortunate to have my mom, and mother-in-law as great examples to follow.
I will never forget the day that we found out that we were pregnant with both babies. We were so excited and couldn't wait to tell everybody. I loved being pregnant and feeling my babys grow and develop inside me...even when things turned for the worst and got very scary. I am so grateful that Kohen and Addison are healthy little people. Coming 6 weeks early and spending time in the hospital...I didn't even mind that they had to come by emergency c-sections. Being a mom is the greatest blessing in my life. I came across a poem that I think sums it all up.....
Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom I had never been puked on. Pooped on. Chewed on. Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts. I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests. Or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.

I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep. Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.

I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom -I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body. I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.

I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy Before I was a Mom -I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.

I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.
